Encouraging Executive Functioning
J.D. Ball, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor Emeritus, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, EVMS
While executive functioning (EF) is important for everyone, executive dysfunction defines and characterizes ADHD. In this session, we will (a) emphasize EF’s neurodevelopmental nature, (b) outline EF’s neuroanatomical bases and components, (c) review EF’s central relevance to ADHD adaptation, management, and treatment, and (d) introduce classroom EF enhancement strategies. Participants should bring and expect a data-based, scientific approach to this topic and leave with pragmatic and thought-provoking suggestions.
